§ Colonel PERKINS
asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that, although the Industrial Court made an award in respect of the starting pay of certain writing assistants appointed through the 1925 limited competition for temporary women clerks in August last, the Post Office has not yet paid out benefit under the award to the girls concerned in Southampton and certain other 1451W areas; and whether he will have inquiries made with a view to securing less delay in the application of Industrial Court awards or staff agreements in future?
§ Sir W. MITCHELL-THOMSON
I am having inquiry made in the matter, and will communicate with my hon. and gallant Friend as soon as possible.
